I will share all my knowledge of experience from having worked in the industry for over 12 years and I will be here every step of the way to support you and cheer you on.

We will work on all aspects of your wholesale

Making sure your products are ready for retail.

Review your prices and make sure they are future proof, this includes both your retail and wholesale prices as they go hand in hand.

Define where you sit in the marketplace, this will not only help you set your prices but it will also help you communicate your brand more consistently.

Delve deep into who your customers are and where they shop, this will help you speak directly to your customer and your stockists and make both selling and marketing your business much easier.

How to approach buyers to make them want to buy into your brand.

How to communicate effectively both with new and existing stockists.

Regularly review your sales so you can actively grow your business. This will make you feel much more confident and in control of growing your business.

Set targets and goals that are both achievable and challenging, I will be there to keep you accountable for each step on the way.

Throughout working together you will grow in confidence and as a result, you will grow your sales and feel in control of your business.

What's included

In-depth questionnaire so I can really get to know your business and better understand what your expectations are by working together and what you want to achieve. 

Review of what you’ve done for your wholesale up until now, this includes any pricing, sales material or email pitches you’ve already sent. 

We then book our initial 2-hour Zoom to kickstart our work together. This session will be packed of information and you will leave full of energy and excitement. You can record any of our Zooms if you would like to review them again later on.

This is followed up by monthly 1-hour Zooms (2 for the 3-month program or 5 for the 6-month program).

You will have your own google drive with your action plan which I will update after each call. This is also where any templates or material will live which I will provide as needed.

Throughout the program, you can email or DM me whenever you need and I will respond as soon as I can. 

In the 6-month program, you will also have access to ad-hoc mini-zooms/calls for whenever you need them. This might be to prepare for a call/meeting if you’re feeling unmotivated or you want to celebrate something.

As part of your team, I will be there to keep you accountable and cheer you on the whole way through

Who is it for?

Product-based business owners that are ambitions and determined to grow their businesses.

Perhaps you’ve done a little bit of wholesale but now you’re ready to really go for it but you’re not sure how to go about it as previously stockists have come to you. 

You’re brand new to wholesale and don’t know how to start but you are excited about the prospect of seeing your range in shops. 

You have searched the internet, joined all the Facebook groups and spent both time and money on trying to do it by yourself and you’re ready to invest in making it happen.

You’re ready to get started selling to shops, like yesterday, and don’t want to waste time.

You’ve been told by shop owners and buyers that your pricing doesn’t work and you don’t know how to fix it or what’s expected. 

You’re not making any money on your wholesale.

Who am I?

My name is Therese Ørtenblad and I’ve worked in sales in the home & gift industry since June 2008, selling novelty gifts, toys, stationery, beauty & home fragrance, homewares, table-top, pet products, and books. Each experience has provided me with unique and diverse learnings, and I’ve worked with a wide range of customers and products.

 

My industry experience covers all types of retailer, from small independent gift and home stores such as Vinegar Hill, to fashion chains like Urban Outfitters and Topshop, department stores such as Liberty, Selfridges and John Lewis and online retailers such as Asos.com and Ocado (and many more!).

 

Since Autumn of 2018 I’ve been lucky enough to work with some amazing business owners to help feel more confident in growing their businesses and I feel so proud over all their achievements and growth. Below you can read what a few of my clients have to say.

Kind Words

Therese is an absolute goldmine of information regarding wholesaling. I wasn’t sure I was ready to wholesale and was intimidated by the whole idea of it, but Therese’s knowledge, spectacular resources and brilliantly thought out course meant that I felt fully supported and guided throughout the process of creating my wholesale catalogue and reaching out to potential stockists.

 

Working with Therese has helped me grow in confidence to use my own voice in my business and I have nothing but admiration and gratitude for the work she put into this course. Therese is so passionate about independent business and I truly felt she was personally invested in my success. Whether you’re thinking of wholesaling or have started already Therese is absolutely the one to go to for a friendly ear and expert advice. Thank you SO much for everything, I will be back!

Frequently Asked Questions

I can’t afford this right now, can you still help?


I appreciate that working 1:1 with a mentor is an investment. I’m a firm believer in that we all need help sometimes and that we can save lots of time and money by investing in some help but if this is not an option for you right now have a look at my online masterclasses, blog and ebook (free when you sign up to my newsletter) and make sure you follow me over on Instagram where I always share lots of information. I also have a small buisness podcast called Let's Talk Shop.




How much time will I need to dedicate to my wholesale?


It depends on your goals, you will need to dedicate a bit extra time to get everything set up to get started but then it’s up to you how much time you want to invest. It could be as little as an hour a week or it can be every day of the week. The most important thing is that you can set aside time regularly to grow your sales.




I’m not sure I’m at the right level yet to do this?


You don’t have to have any previous experience but you do need to have your product ready and be able to produce them at a consistent quality.




I already do quite a bit of wholesale, can I still work with you?


Absolutely, I would love to help you to grow your business, get in touch and we can talk more about what you need help with. I work with both new businesses and more established ones.




What happens once I get in touch with you?


First, we will make sure that we are a good fit and that I can help you with what you need help with and I will send you a proposal. If you are happy with this we will sign a contract and we will agree when we should get started.
